Best Dedi Server Mgt Co For Linux, CPanel?

Aug 13, 2008

We are just porting our site over to SoftLayer running linux, cPanel and two Raids (one for DB and one for OS).

What companies would you recommend for Dedicated Server Management?

We would also want this server management company to move the website and provide a suitable level of security going forward.

We do not have the people to manage the server (it is only a few of us plus application programmers). It is just that we need to keep costs reasonable. I do not want to pay more than $100 per month and would like to pay less.

How Do I Host Windows 2008 Server As A Guest OS On My Linux Dedi

Apr 26, 2009

How do I run a virtual instance of Windows server 2008 on my Linux dedi? Do I need to partition the server and create a VPS for this or can I run it on something like VMware? (Please look at my other thread here [url]t=857377 to learn more about my server, its resources and current config.)

Why would I want to do this? Because my primary desktop OS is still Vista Ultimate 64 and I've invested a lot in Windows-based software and hardware--too much to make a total switch to Linux. But, I don't want to invest more than I have to in order to run a Windows server that allows my business partner to access documents remotely or for us to share various files securely and privately and still serve my mostly Windows-based clients and colleagues. I'm one of, well, two people I know who even use Linux (at least at the OS level and know it).

Since my research shows I **can** do this on Centos 5, the responses that would be most useful to me would be those that focus on how I can do this successfully (even if it seems complicate; I can figure it out with help and/or direction) and what to consider or avoid when creating this virtual guest OS on my Linux dedi.

Is A Reliable Dedi With CPanel Under $100/month Possible

Apr 30, 2008

I have been researching various servers for some time, had my experience with bad ones, had experience with good ones, currently my price range is around $1000 a month. Does anyone feel it is possible to find a reliable Dedicated server with cPanel for under $100/month?

Dedi Server Portals

Aug 12, 2008

any dedi server company worth its salt provides a control panel of sorts where you can check bandwidth, raise tickets, etc. Is there anyone who has got a really, really good one that is miles ahead of the rest? I'm wondering what the consensus is on who has the best panel? I want to find the best portal and check it out.

New Dedi Server - Memory Not Going Below 87%?

Oct 7, 2007

I've recently purchased a new dedicated box and am noticing via phpsyinfo that memory is pretty much always around 87% (It was at 97% used today for a good hour and quite often its at 90+%)

This system has a 1GB of ram, and runs DirectAdmin. There are only 4 sites on the server and none of them are busy sites currently.

I've read around and studied a few of the threads here on WHT regarding high memory usage but I am at abit of a loss on the cause here and what I can do.

I found a few commands to run to help try and establish the cause - After running ps aux I noticed:

Buget Dedi Server From Europe

Mar 8, 2008

I am currently finding a server which is located in the Europe side, preferably in Germany or Netherlands.

Server with 80gb of space, min of 512mb of ram and 1tb of transfer per mth. 100mbit connection.2 ip is enough.

Hope ircd can be run too.

Hope the price does not exceed 35 pounds. But willing to negotiate.

Setting Up My First Ever Debian Dedi Server

Nov 6, 2008

I just purchased a Debian server with a plesk control panel. It is suppose to be online within 24 hours. I have no idea how to set it up because so far I have only used shared hosts.

I need to know the following

1. how do I create the httpdocs/public_html folder

2. is it possible to FTP? If not what can I use for file uploading?

3. How do I setup a MySQl database? Is it possible to do this using plesk control panel? (Shared hosting can do this through plesk)

4. How do I setup my domain name servers? through plesk?

Reload A Dedi

Mar 11, 2008

I asked my host to reload/rebuild my dedicated server as I wanted to clear my entire server so that I can used it for a brand new project but I was told that it would cost me $75 per server.

Am I able to engage a freelancer to do it rather than getting my hosting provider? I would also need to change the server hostname from www1.xxx.com to www1.yyy.com and the name server to be changed to ns1.yyy.com and ns2.yyy.com instead of ns1/2.xxx.com. In short, I do not want yyy.com to be traced back to xxx.com at all. I do not want a traceroute, cpanel or other means to link the two site together.

BUT i am stuck adding one domain. First i tried making a new account for this domain through WHM but problem was not solved, so today i parked this domain to a domain's cPanel account but after that also problem was not solved

So, let me first explain you whole problem. Suppose my domain is my-domain.com

This domain my-domain.com was added to shared hosting account at ace-host.net. But after purchasing dedicated server, i shifted whole site data to new server and changed the nameservers of my-domain.com with new ones and atlast i removed this domain from my Ace-host.net account.

Then i waited for about 2days to domain to propagate with new server's namesevers. But when nothing happened (i checked the domain whois record, they were showing my new server's nameservers), atlast i contacted Softlayer regarding this and after sometime they replied We have given the correct server alias for your domain my-domain.com in apache configuration and it was working fine that monent.

But after sometime i checked that my-domain.com is loading fine but it is taking whole data (including database and templates) from my OLD HOST ... Ace-host.net!

As i have already mentioned that i have already deleted my-domain.com from Acehost account and also updated the my-domain.com's nameservers with new dedicated server's.

And i checked many times WHOIS records from different websites at that moment. All were showing nameserver records of my new server.

I now contacted PSM and they after sometime replied that its working now as they just had to restart dns server.

BUT NOW , today again samething is happening! (on the 4th day)

so, i terminated my-domain.com's account from my server's WHM. and then parked in other domain cPanel account on same (Softlayer) server but still problem is still there!!

Domain is registered at Namecheap.com

NOTE: I am not saying anything against PSM or Softlayer and their support staff. They are both THE BEST in the market! and they have helped me a lot manytimes.

I also have two more domains on this new server and both are working fine from very first day. They are registered with local registrar not with namecheap.

Email On My New Dedi

Dec 6, 2007

i've purchased a dedicated box with Plesk webhosting, but i can't get the email forwarding services to work

The domain is registered with Domainsite, set in plesk to forward admin@domain.com to my gmail... and it doesn't work no matter what i try...

First settings i tried( I use domainsite's nameservers and set the dns in there, if you know a better/other way, please reply) blanked out the last 2 chars of the ip just in case

Code:
Record Type Record Host Record Answer TTL Priority (MX only) Create Date
A *.domain.com 84.244.-.- (delete) 300 2007-11-10 07:43:03
A domain.com 84.244.-.- (delete) 300 2007-11-10
well that didn't work, so i figured i needed a MX record

I added:

Code:
MX domain.com 84.244.-.- (delete) 300 10
but it still didn't work( i did wait a few days after each change)

Then i tried the domainforwarder from Domainsite itself
which added 2 records:

Code:
MX domain.com mx0.domainsite.com (delete) 300 10 2007-12-01 12:17:37
TXT domain.com v=spf1 a mx ~all (delete) 300 2007-12-01 12:17:37

but it still doesn't work

i'm also getting mails bounced back with the line: "Reverse DNS lookup for your IP address is failing."

what changes need to make?

Which DC Should I Resell Dedi Servers

Jan 3, 2009

I had shortlisted a few, although there may be more choices..

SoftLayer have lesser discount, but they have an excellent DC, hardware & more~
Gigenet have up to 30% discount and 15% at least, which is a plus, but I'm not sure about other stuffs, although they are also pretty reputable around..

LimeStoneNetworks have very little discount, and their servers are cheap, but their specs are pretty much *fixed*, and they do not seem to offer as much as the above..
HandyNetworks have cheap servers too, but they are not as competitive with the above 3, in the sense that they are not much interested to join the competition, remaining on their own track completely..

HiVelocity - No information, although their requirement is pretty simple..
Take2Hosting, although they have really cheap servers, their datacenter isn't as advanced as the others, and... Cogent... IMO more suitable for personal use, small sites etc.

IMO I will prefer SoftLayer, but their servers are quite expensive, so even if I get 4 dummy servers, which cost $119(their cheapest server) and multiple by 4 is $476, and get a server used to sell hosting, it will not be cheap.. However, on the other end, Gigenet has cheaper servers(especially their specials, really better than SL), although their entry server is $154, which I suppose everything will balance out, I just can't think of anything they can be better than SL, in terms of network, support, server administration(I heard and tried SoftLayer's portal to manage the server, it was excellent!) etc.

I will actually love to resell Gigenet servers, since it is a lot cheaper(in terms of discount), and their prices are roughly the same(except SL RAM is more expensive)..

Possible Problem With The Ethernet Of My Dedi

Nov 4, 2009

i have recently get this server , we moved to this server in the same datacenter

Linux OS:centos 5.4
Kernel Version(uname -r) 2.6.28.7
Hardware Information:icore7 920 + 12gb ram
Software Version;csf firewall, ossec Intrusion Detection System, rvsitebuilder
Control Panel(if any)whm+ fantastico

yesterday the dc tech logged-in by ssh (root) cause we couldn't connect to the ftp box we keep our backup's (the new box couldnt connect to the ftp got time out)
They fixed it.

Today i got a time out and after 2 reset and restaring of services the server was back again.Then i got this messages and it still coming (3 hours now i get 1 similar message per 5 second )

Code:
Nov 4 12:31:20 gandalf kernel: martian source 217.20.117.1 from 127.0.0.239, on dev eth0
Nov 4 12:31:20 gandalf kernel: ll header: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:1a:4b:3a:7e:23:08:06

Nov 4 12:31:22 gandalf kernel: ll header: ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:00:1a:4b:3a:7e:23:08:06
Also the firewall stopped the port scanning from a server within the same dc.

I checked it on google and the explanation's varies but most say that is a problem of the router/switch or similar.

I have non-english languages being showed as ? on different servers / vps.

I have tried "yum install french support" which installed but the problem persist.

On one of the VPS i switched to lighttp and the problem disappears.

I guess it has to do with Apache?

CreativeVPS/CreativeRACK Dedi

Apr 2, 2009

I would like share my experience with CreativeVPS/CreativeRACK, I've been around this forum for a while now but rarely post and I never shared my bad experiences but sometimes it is necessary to do so that others would know and maybe improve the service people get. Forgive me if I misspell and the bad grammar English is not my first language.

I currently have a a VPS with Servint which is Great
but lately I felt it wasn't enough and was thinking moving up to a small dedi and yesterday (March 31 2009) I found "[CreativeRACK] Closeouts! DUAL CORE / 2GB RAM / 250GB SATA - $59 (Managed!)" under "Dedicated Hosting Offers"
the offer looked good and Joseph r00ter been around the forum for a while now and has a nice posts counts so I decided to go for it so yesterday March 31 2009 I talked to Joseph on the messenger, he was nice and near midnight(thumbs up to Joseph for working late) I ordered the "last" Intel Pentium D 925 for $59.95+$20 cpanel, he emailed me the invoice I paid it right a way.

I woke up in the morning <--thats how I actually look in the mornings , and saw that Servint had upgraded all the packages, which changed things to me and I decided not to move to a dedi and stay some more with servint. so I opened a high priority ticket to cancel the order, before my morning coffee . the response I got was "Payments made to CreativeVPS are non-refundable as it says in our Terms of Service, which you were bound to when you placed the order..." later that day I messeged Joseph but he said the same thing and that they already bought the hardware *reminder* it was closeout clearance sale server* and that I'm obligated to their TOS that stated that there no refunds.
he quoted "Q: Do you have a moneyback guarantee?

A: Due to the amount of fraud orders we get, we do not offer a moneyback guarantee."
from the offer page.

the worst thing in my opinion is that when I stated that there is no visible link to the TOS on their "Legal Information" page which contained AUP and SLA which did not say anything about refunds Joseph just changed the page.

I can post the entire conversation if needed.

Unfortunately I had to open a dispute with Paypal, I hate doing it and before this incident I only charged-back only once (when RegisterFly charged my credit card and closed their business)

aside the legal part there is a right way to run a business and handle clients, this is not it. you need to be fair and honest. and not just profitable.

Can't Restart Iptables On My Dedi

May 5, 2009

I shut down iptables on my dedi to try to install Poweradmin but, when the install did not work (probably because DirectAdmin was controlling files and processes I needed for the package) I attempted to restart iptables by running "/etc/init.d/iptables restart" and "service iptables start". It didn't restart. I restarted the webserver running "/etc/init.d/httpd restart". I even rebooted the dedi. Still, no iptables.

Managed Dedi/VPS For A Reseller

May 15, 2009

Is there anything like that?

A reseller wants to be alone, server resources, dedicated IP, etc. while doesn't have Sys Admin nor Server management knowledge..

Is there a dedicated/VPS that is fully managed from the Hardware, OS, up to System Admin level, leaving the reseller to just use his reseller account on it?

What is the name of such package? under what name should he look for it? how different is it from Managed dedicated/ VPS?

Lightweight Services On A VPS/Dedi

Jun 1, 2008

I was wondering if it's feasible to run a VPS/Dedi server entirely on lightweight alternatives. I.e:
nginx/lighty/litespeed instead of apache
php/fastcgi or php-litespeed instead of mod_php
tinydns instead of bind
and so on...

Is it a viable solution? Is anyone running their hosts on these alt servers? What is your experience?

I'm specially interested in nginx (lighty has been accused of leaking memory, and litespeed std is feature-limited). What's your verdict on running it as a stand-alone server for php-fastcgi and static contents?

Wixed Hosting, Anyone Using Them For Dedi's

Oct 3, 2008

I have been following there posts in the offers section of wht for a few weeks now, I've contacted RN-DAVID a few times about his offers and the response has always been fast and the service sounds good, however i would like to know what everyone else thinks.

I'm looking to order two servers from them with the following specs:

Server 1:
AMD Sempron 3000+
2GB DDR2 RAM
1X 120GB SATA II HDD
1X 160GB SATA II HDD
2 IP Addresses
Windows Server 2003 Std
3TB CAP on a 100Mbps Line
Priced @ 40.95 PM with 20.00 Setup for RAM and Second HDD

This server will just be for my personal use really, I'm planning on backing up some of my personal data to it, photos, documents etc... I'll be using it via remote desktop mainly so doesn't need to be top spec.

The second server is going to be an additional Cpanel Web Server With the following spec's

Intel Core 2 Quad 6600
4GB DDR II RAM
2X 500GB SATA II HDD'S (RAID)
8 IP Addresses
CentOS
CPanel
3TB on 100Mbps Line
Cost 69.95PM + 120 For RAM, HDD & Raid Card Upgrades

Now when it comes to value for money both servers seem fantastic to me, but what I would like to know is does anyone else use them? what are your experiences with them? whats there support like? etc...

Comparing VPS Vs Dedi Plan...

Sep 6, 2008

I am trying to make a decision on switching from my current VPS hosting to a dedicated solution. If I rent the server in the next 24 hours from Theplanet, I can get a Celeron 2.0+ with 1GB of ram and an 80GB hd for $74/month (plus $25 setup). $15/month of that is for doubling the ram to 512MB, so I could get the same without that for $59/month.

Comparisons:
VPS: 2 1.6Mhz Dual-Core AMD Opteron Processor 2210 HE's, I don't know how many people share that
Dedi: Celeron 2.0, all mine. (and yes, I know that is potentially a bit of a downgrade)

VPS: 512MB ram and 1024MB swap
Dedi: 1024MB ram (guessing I set my own swap size?)

VPS: 25GB allocated space
Dedi: 80GB hd

VPS: 1.5Mbps connection
Dedi: 10Mbps connection

VPS: CP+ control panel
Dedi: None included (could install Webmin myself, which is free, never used it before though)

VPS: Their DNS servers
Dedi: Need to use my own

So basically the parts I don't know the difference between would be the processor, the control panel, and what the performance impact on running primary and secondary DNS servers on the same box as the webserver. Anyone have any feedback on those points?

Separate question... assuming I go for it, what would be the deciding factors on OS, if the choices were CentOS 4.x, CentOS 5.x, FreeBSD 6.3, or FreeBSD 7.0?

Dedi For A High Quality VPN Provider

May 19, 2009

I'm about to start a premium VPN service provider, i've found that far too many people in this area are content with providing 100kb/s download speeds and poor reliablity, and think I can provide something better.

I'm currently evaluating options for the hosting i'll need. Initially i'd only be looking at 1 or 2 high bandwidth servers from a quality provider(in the US), on a monthly contract - obviously with the capacity to increase this as and when business becomes a little more established.

I've looked at 10tb.com, and a few uncapped 100Mb providers (Sharktech and others). Obviously I can see the 10tb cap on a gigabit port being a potentially expensive issue - how do they measure this bandwidth? I've noticed that several companies are now only counting the upload which would help me alot, is this standard? Additionally, and considering that i'm specifically NOT going to permit p2p usage in my TOS, would I be correct in assuming that providers will have no issue with this form of service over their network?

Finally, to the more experienced folk here, who would you choose... and why?! Given that i'm marketing this as a premium service, cost isn't the most important factor, but obviously it is one of the considerations.

AV, Anti-RootKit, And Firewall For Dedi

Nov 15, 2008

trying to secure my new server that will be opening for shared hosting.

So far I've found:

CHKRootKit, RKHunter, and ClamAV

As for Firewall, I've setup CSF but my question is, what is a good setting for blocking SYN Floods without blocking clients who might be browsing their site and, using DA, and FTP.

In the past I've used:

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn -m limit --limit 1/s --limit-burst 3 -j DROP
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn -m limit --limit 3/s --limit-burst 5 -j DROP
and took down some pretty big attacks, but it was very touchy.

Is Colocation More Expensive Than Reselling Dedi-boxes?

Feb 18, 2007

I currently run 16 boxes which I rent from various data centers, mark-up and resell. Conventional wisdom says that it's time for me to start colocating my own servers. I've got approval for capital (loan) so it's no problem for me to just buy these boxes and colo them. But... how the hell does anyone afford it?

I mean, I can get a cabinet in H.E. with 10Mbps burst to 100Mbps for $600/mo (through EGI). Which is an insanely good deal until you realize that it only includes 15amps of power. So (I think) that means that I can really only run about 15 or 20 Celerons at the most. So much for filling up the rack.

Optimistically, if I can run 20 Celerons which I've priced at about $700 each including shipping -- plus a switch, KVM, spare parts and bank interest over 24 months -- that's about $800/mo for the servers plus $600 for the cab, plus about $200/mo for remote hands in case I need the DC guys to do something. I'm looking at about $80/mo per server which I have to pay whether it's rented or not.

I can easily find celerons for $80/mo which include some level of support and I can very easily cancel whenever my client does and buy a fresh new one whenever I get a new client.

I was all excited to go colo -- but the numbers don't add up. What am I missing here? What's the big advantage to all the extra hassle of owning your own?
